• Gas main catches fire, burns for hours Sunday evening in Roslindale


    BOSTON - A gas main caught fire Sunday evening where National Grid crews were working on the line in Roslindale, according to the Boston Fire Department. 

    Three workers were taken to the hospital with burn injuries after the fire, which sparked around 6 p.m. along Hyde Park Avenue. 

    National Grid was in the process of working on the 10-inch line, but police didn’t say what work was being done. 

    Boston Fire Department brought in sand to put on the fire shortly after 8 p.m. and said no evacuations were underway. However, MBTA buses were put on standby in case evacuations were needed. 

    The Commissioner of Boston's Fire Department was on scene late Sunday night and crews said the scene would likely remain active into Monday. 

    Fire officials said turning off the gas main would cause many homes in the area to lose heat.
